Hit the Fair, Wii style

Now that you’re warmed up and ready to win, I’ve got a little something for you.

Looking for an authentic Fair experience, minus the crowds and the funnel cakes? (Wait, why wouldn’t you want the funnel cakes?!?) It turns out that 2K Play is on it. Sure, there was a Carnival Games Wii game before, but now there’s New Carnival Games, the latest and greatest way to experience all the fun a carnival has to offer your wiimotes.

And of course, I have a copy sitting right here, ready to send to one lucky Want Not reader.

Want to win it? Of course you do! First, go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Wednesday, November 4th, 2010 for a chance to win. Winner to be determined by random number generation and ability to toss a ring over the neck of an old-fashioned Coke bottle.

Ready? Go!

  58. This is really sad, but Carnival Games is one of my favorite things to play on the Wii. I would LOVE to win this!

  73. My daughter loves teh first one…would love to put this away for Christmas!

  74. Any new Wii games are GREAT. They keep us busy and entertained when it’s cold outside.

  75. Sounds like something the preschooler might be able to do… (unlike the ski jump, where the balance board doesn’t seem to notice her jump attempts and just turns her into a snowman over and over again!)

  76. I’m in!

  77. A new Wii game sounds lovely!

  78. Sounds like great fun!

  79. Thanks, Mir! This is even better than a fish in a plastic baggie!

  92. So fun! Thanks Mir 🙂

  93. Oooooh, thanks for the opportunity!

  94. This would be awesome!

  95. I went to the mall today. There was CHRISTMAS music. Obviously, I panicked as I haven’t bought anything and the Christmas Music of Doom was there to remind me that I will have ruined every holiday memory my children ever have if I don’t get on the ball and do some shopping. But I don’t feeeeel like shopping so I am counting this as “trying” to get Christmas ready.

  96. Woo to the hoo! Although, please tell me they don’t have the “guess your weight” Carnie.

  97. Love the sights and sounds of the county/state fair including the animals!
